True gladness is arbitrary. It's a sparking of your truer perspective shining light into the surface of your life. It's also a way of geting in sync almost faster than any other move I know of.
So, we want to practice that move. In GI Jane, she has to practice and practice the move of reassembling a fancy complicated gun without looking so that when the real life moment arises she doesn't get tangled up on the details of the action, so she can just use it to survive ... or ... to do whatever the heck she was doing in the film besides a lot of sexy sweaty push up montages.
A lot of people ask me how I remember to do the things that help me be happy, be me, be productive and clear and contributing and clearly vibrating. I wish I had a sexier answer than the joke about how to get to Carnegie Hall, y'all, I practice. I practice A LOT. On drives we play rampage games, in conversations I frequently inquire into what is working well for people and what is going right. I do rampages of appreciation on my walks into a recorder and listen back to them at later times and feel bolstered and renewed by the joy I captured earlier.
This week, as I continue the 100 Days Deep, I'm inviting this glad tribe into a week of deep gratitude. Not mambsy pambsy kind of stuff, not I'm eating my stinking oatmeal cuz it's good for me kind of attitude, but daring to approach the art of gratitude as if you were climbing a ladder to the heavens.
Hands firmly on the rung, heart totally committed, attention 1000% percent dialed into the task at hand.
Let's go to heaven, shall we?
Today's focus is: being a part of the human family. In an ideal world, you'll add your own list and share here on blog or in comments on fb post or both!
